James Buckley admits he "came across as a complete moron" during "The Inbetweeners" reunion show.
The 31-year-old actor says the "The Inbetweeners: Fwends Reunited" programme, which was criticised by some fans, was a disappointment for him because he couldn't keep up with the quick wit of host Jimmy Carr.
On the latest instalment of his podcast "Completed it Mate", he said: "It became a thing that wasn't a celebration of this good thing I did in my life, it was me being taken the p**s out of for hours on end.
"I didn't have the personality or the intelligence to cope with it, especially when you're up against someone like Jimmy Carr, who's super quick and super funny. So I come across as a complete moron through the whole thing and also there was a bit where I got stuck.
"There would be a couple of times where I would say something and Jimmy would go, "Still bulls****ing." I got caught where I was acting up as Jay because there was an audience there of "Inbetweeners" fans and I got caught in this spot between Jay and myself where myself I was going, "You're acting like a f***ing idiot, you're being a moron, you're being a d***." "
James also admitted he felt under pressure to act like Jay on the show because there was an audience.
He added: "There was this bit where it was like, "Well, they're all here and they want you to be Jay, so do it." When the audience was there, I didn't want to seem like a stick in the mud. I didn't want to go, "Can we stop for a second because I don't know what the f***"s going on here - you're talking to me like I'm Jay from "The Inbetweeners". I'm really not." So that was another one of the reasons why it was a disaster."
The actor also said he was just as "disappointed as everyone else" when the show aired.
